View Full Version : Another boring BrassMonkey Hand? Maybe... $109

Alright guys, hopefully this one is more interesting... I'm trying, dammit!

Here's the line on G. G is the lone blind, the hand after a hand in which he lost a bunch of chips on an AK (what G had), AQ, J 10 (!) all-in. Yup, you guessed it - the J 10 won, and G wasn't happy about it. Knowing that, what do you do with this JJ after an initial bet of 150 is met by an all-in by G?

Super interesting, right? Heh.

This is not an auto call against every opponent (although I'm calling a fair bit more than I'm folding), but given your description of the opponent I'd call.

09-19-2005, 10:57 PM
I call, maybe bet slightly more preflop.

Okay, good, I'm glad you all agree with my call. I figured it was close. What's the weakest hand with which you'd make this call?

As a reward, you get to see my ugly beat. Donkey bitch won the whole tournament, too... See, I promised "interesting", and boy did I deliver! /images/graemlins/smile.gif

I was about to reply that when people make these "tilt pushes" they normally have something decent, but not a monster like a medium PP. Then I read the results . . . I finally got one right!

I think you're way ahead of his range here in general, so yeah, call.
